Homemade bread is always a treat, especially on Mother’s Day. This is a delightful recipe that makes two loaves of Blueberry Bread. One for you, and one to give away! Blueberries are available year round fresh or frozen which makes this quick bread recipe even easier. You will not be disappointed with how moist and yummy this turns out. Just imagine getting breakfast in bed, complete with premium butter on the side.

Easy Blueberry Bread quick bread for Mother's Day brunch!

The blueberry muffin bread recipe gives you versatility in the kitchen. You can bake two loaves of bread, 24 blueberry muffins, or a bundt cake. I really like the idea of the two loaves of bread so we can enjoy one as a family on Mother’s Day and give the other one to family. Sweet breakfast bread with premium butter is always a winner.

Did you know there is a difference between store brand butter and premium butter? Often times, store brand butter includes rGBH, a growth hormone. You may have been buying organic milk for awhile, but what about your butter? I made this recipe with Finlandia Butter, a premium butter made from cows that live on farms where they are not treated with rGBH. Whether you are baking and need unsalted butter, or topping off a piece of blueberry bread with salted butter, you can make a healthier choice with Finlandia. (Next on my list to try is bulletproof coffee, has anyone tried it?)

When you mix together the blueberries with the batter, fold them in slowly. If you stir too much, the whole bread will turn purple!

This is a versatile recipe and you can make this as a quick bread, muffin or bundt cake. If you make two, eat one warm from the oven with butter and giveaway the other one. Or, keep it in the freezer for when you have company. Blueberry Bread is great to bring to a Mother’s Day brunch too.

This tasted just like a blueberry muffin with the cinnamon sugar topping making it a little extra sweet. Save this recipe for Mother’s Day and treat yourself, or the special Mother in your life.

What do pirates and fairies have in common? They are often a part of my kid’s world of imaginative play, complete with pretend swords, fairy wings and silly stories. When I heard about the new Disney DVD coming out called The Pirate Fairy, I was pretty sure my kids would love it. Today I’m sharing this recipe inspired by the movie adorned with Blue Pixie Dust. Did you know fairies can’t fly without Blue Pixie Dust? 

Our own all-natural vegetable colored blue pixie dust is decorating Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream. It’s a diary-free ice cream, which is great for so many people who are lactose-intolerant. It’s great to have a couple of recipe ideas for when you have guests over that dietary restrictions, which is often the case when we have play dates these days. It’s also vegan friendly.

Easy Coconut Ice Cream. Just three ingredients needed!

The Pirate Fairy DVD/Blu-Ray will be available for purchase at Walmart on April 1st, so the recipe I created includes ingredients that can also be found there. It’s simple with only three ingredients needed. Decorate your own ice cream with some blue pixie dust! Plus, there is also an exclusive Pixie Hollow Bake-Off DVD at Walmart, and my favorite chef Giada de Laurentiis plays the head baking fairy Gelata.

Coconut milk is the star ingredient in this recipe. Sometime you can find one that is “low-fat” and I would choose that one as it’s easier to work with. The one here from Walmart worked perfectly as the whole thing was liquid, even though it wasn’t specifically call low-fat. Cane sugar is often sold as Sugar In The Raw. The recipe was developed for use in an ice cream maker. (We use the Breville one.)

Did you know today is pie day?  I thought I would share my Strawberry Rhubarb galette, which is essentially a pie but sounds so much fancier.  Shhh, don’t tell anyone it’s even easier to make than a pie.

I have made the Martha Stewart Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, as seen here. Lattice pies are lovely but not something you can whip up in 15 minutes.  Yes, you can make pie in 15 minutes.  Yes, that includes making your own crust.

I make my pie crust from an old Betty Crocker recipe using flour, milk, vegetable oil (it’s the only thing I still use vegetable oil for!) and a little salt.

For this recipe, I made a 9″ pie shell mixing together 1 1/3 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup vegetable oil and 3 tablespoons of milk.

Roll out and transferred to a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.

For the filling, I used 2 stalks of rhubarb cut 3/4” thick.  Add 1/2 cup sugar, 2 cups roughly chopped strawberries, 1/8″ teaspoon of salt, 3 tablespoons of cornstarch and about 1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice.  Mix together and pour in the middle of the pie crust.

Fold the sides in towards the middle, overlapping slowly.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for about one hour.  Let cool and transfer to a cake stand and serve.  Goes great with a little strawberry ice cream.
